We are a group for people with Autoimmune or chronic illnesses who desire to live a healthier life and be social while doing it. The diet we recommend is the AIP diet (Autoimmune Protocol) as seen in Dr. Sara Ballantyne's The Paleo Approach. People who utilize other diets to heal and maintain their health are welcomed as are people who are just starting their healing adventure.
It's difficult to get 'out' and eat healthy and virtually impossible to eat AIP out. We start this diet/lifestyle because we want to live as healthy and full a life as possible and find it's darn near impossible to socialize on it. SO we are organizing our own social events that will be healing food friendly. Cookouts, card games, movie nights...whatever the crowd desires. Also support groups. This is a difficult lifestyle transition and support from others familiar with the process can be essential and rewarding.
Meetings will be near the St. Petersburg, South Pasadena, St. Pete Beach area because that's where I live. Others that join are welcomed to organize meetings in other areas if they desire.
